Hey guys - wondering if anyone has run into this problem...
I have a workstation and a laptop connected via a Homegroup.
Now that I got it working properly the workstation refuses to go into Sleep Mode. The monitors go dark, Windows goes into a suspend state - but the fans keep spinning.
I've tried a number of solutions using the powercfg utility - including adding registry entries to "Allow remote opens" and the other ideas on this site: (iBoyd) » Windows 7 Power Management: Fixing PC Insomnia
(very worthwhile read imo - great site. unfortunately none of the ideas fixed my "insomnia" problem)
I've tried changing my Power Profile to allow sleep after 1 minute, I've stopped media streaming on the Homegroup advanced options... nothing changes.
I would really appreciate any thoughts you can share...Thanks!
